name, but again, very open to hearing other thoughts from colleagues. >> i really like mr. yorck. one of the few applicants who i remember well from 2011 when i sat on this committee. he gave, i thought, a very impassioned presentation last year and i remembered it. and i felt bad that we couldn't find a spot for him last year. and i like the breadth of experience that he has. so, i have some concern -- i'll let you guys finish. i have some concern that the animal welfare commission is becoming the dog commission. it's the animal commission. there are a lot of animals in san francisco, and mr. yorck has a pretty unique level of experience when it comes to birds. they are animals. we have bird issues in san francisco and i think he could bring some knowledge to the commission. and certainly his passion about the work, you've heard the testimony about all that he's done over the last year, two years, observing all that the commission has done. i think he'd be a good appointment and i see it is a bit of a mistake we made last year and i'd like to give it a shot to clean it up this year.

for it. they would say, yeah -- no. sorry. >> i was looking for a stronger answer, mr. yorck. >>> i'm not good at this. >> again, i have no reason to know that any of this is true. that's why i wanted to simply ask. >>> do you have a name or did someone give a name or anything? was it just a nasty rumor? >> what i think would be best is perhaps if we can take -- continue this item till a later portion of the agenda and we can -- i certainly do not want the approval or the recommendation of your nomination to be based on something that is untrue or unfounded. but i certainly think that it behooves us to deal with it. >>> i appreciate it. >> i appreciate your -- you did submit a very lengthy application which speaks to your enthusiasm and passion for the seat. you submitted a multi-page statement which we already received back in may. so, i do really do see the passion and enthusiasm that you have for this seat. so, what i'm going to propose is that we actually continue this item till a later portion of the agenda. >>> thank you. >> but at this time maybe we can move forward with the mo
